Fountainhead Regional Park has one of the best trail systems in the northern Virginia area. The green loop is enjoyable, with berms, tabletops, bridges, as well as more natural features like exposed rocks and roots. It's a stand alone beginner loop and also serves as the feeder for both Blue and Black loops. Stay right, and over, at the bridge to return to the lot and stay on Green.

       Easily one of the most fun and well built greenbelt trails in the area. Great for all ability levels and the small berms and rollers are still fun for even experts.

       Really fun, it launches you right into flow from the parking lot, there are actually drops and kind of hard sections for a green trail, but it's easily a really great trail.
